Re: DuManchu's Log

L5D2 - 7:20 (August 10th, 2011) A little bit slower than I had expected, oh well. I suspect I'll improve this dramatically over the next two weeks or so, or at least I HOPE I do. Part of the reason it took me longer is I switched to incline push ups instead of regular push ups and I made sure I had...

Re: DuManchu's Log

Just wanted to catch up a little bit since I hurt my shoulder. Did L4D1 on Tuesday last week, got in 24 rounds taking it pretty easy. Ended up doing L4D3 on Thursday to see if I was ready for L5. Did L4D3 in 4:43. LEVEL UP!!! L5D1 - 20 Rounds Got in a solid 20 rounds yesterday, definitely don't thin...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D2 - Skipped due to injury Tweaked my shoulder on Monday somehow, I'm thinking I didn't warm up well enough before L4D1 and I'm now paying the price. I can do push ups just fine, but I can't complete a pull up without a quite a lot of pain. I believe it's just a strained tendon or something in my...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D1 - 27 Rounds Really kinda got lax at the end of the week and skipped cardio on Thursday and slept in on Friday and missed SimpleFit L4D3. No matter, got back on the horse and kicked ass this evening. I could have gotten maybe 1-2 more rounds, but I went pretty hard. I threw in some diamond push...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D2 - Time: 5:00 Tried to push myself a little harder this morning, I think I could have gotten under this time a bit more if I had sped up my squats and push ups but I feel like focusing on form and going slower nets a better workout overall. Also, I need to get gloves or something, I'm getting s...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D1 - 25 Rounds Did a full 25 rounds this morning though I probably could have gotten in 30 if I had really pushed myself. I lolly-gagged for the first 10 rounds or so, hoping to save my energy for later rounds, but I don’t think it mattered or helped. I think I slightly strained my left forearm a...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D3 - Time: 5:18 Just a bit over 5 minutes on day 3, level 4. I hit a wall in my push ups, I can do about 35 in a row without stopping, but I think after my pull ups were done I just couldn't do it. Had to split them up 30, 11. Other than that, did really well. Squats don't seem to really work me ...

Re: DuManchu's Progress / Goals

Just wanted to post up some progress pics. I know the poses aren't the same, but you can still see a difference.

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D2 - Time: 5:10 Ended up skipping cardio last night, I was too wiped out, elected to try to get more sleep and ended up not being able to fall asleep :/ Oh well, did day 2 of level 4 this morning and did well. I could have gone faster but was more concerned with form again. I think I get a much b...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L4D1 - Rounds: 23 Managed 23 rounds this morning with good, solid form. I think I could have probably eeked out another 2-3 rounds if I had really pushed myself, but I still feel good about what I accomplished this morning. Going to try and throw in some cardio this evening along with my "vanity" l...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L3D3 - Time: 4:10 (07-08-2011) Under 5 minutes again this morning, definitely ready for level 4. Decided against cardio last night in favor of more sleep, which I think helped me greatly. It was nice to take that small break during the week, but I’ll be back to the grind again next week. 9, 4, 3 pu...

L3D1 - SKIPPED!!!! (07/04/2011) Spent the entire weekend digging holes and moving around massive amounts of dirt, elected to skip day 1 since I was still hurting from my weekend work. L3D2 - Untimed Even though I was under 5 minutes on D3, I decided to stick with L3 for this week focusing on gettin...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L3D2 - 4:36 Did day 2 today, this time with the proper breaks, wasn’t too bad. I’m honestly starting to wonder if SimpleFit is _too_ simple. I don’t ever really feel like I got a good exercise. I’m sure I am, I’ve seen the results here on the SF forums, but it just doesn’t feel like it. I’m going t...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L3D1 - 20 Rounds Did 20 solid rounds this morning focusing on good form and doing full pull ups instead of doing modified pull ups for more rounds. I also changed my push up form to be more effective as per this article - http://www.t-nation.com/readArticle.do?id=4618348 Overall, this was a better ...

Re: DuManchu's Log

L3D3 - 5:15 Pull-Ups (standard) - 16 (5, 2, 2, 3, 2, 2) Push-Ups - 33 (all at once) Squats - 33 (all at once) Not quite under 5:00 like I had though I may be able to do, but I did all the exercises with good form and didn't rush. The pull-ups really hammered me, ended up taking me longer than I exp...
